It’s amazing how easy it is for the tiger to pass himself off as a rug- he enjoys a life of luxury with the rajah’s family, snacking on midnight feasts and playing with his children. He goes entirely undetected, until one night, when he risks expulsion from his comfortable abode as burglars break into the palace and he has to decide whether to stay in disguise as a rug – or save the rajah from a horrible beating. However, tigers who live in houses can have happy endings, as seen in this utterly brilliant picture book.
`An absolute joy . . . This is a perfect picture book to reissue; a whole host of new readers will fall in love with the charismatic tiger and delight in the happy ending’
–The Bookseller, Vanessa Lewis
`This is no ordinary picture book, but a terrific read aloud book with deft comic touches and intensely funny illustrations’
–The Bookseller, Marilyn Brocklehurst
